windows: svnserve as a service won't launch

Up to yesterday, we had this configuration (working fine):
- server1: subversion 1.3.2 client + svnservice.exe, accessing the UNC path \\server11\path\to\repository running as domain user administrator
- server11: windows file share with FSFS repository
Then, after a reboot, the service suddenly refused to launch.
We've tried to troubleshoot by:
- Launching the svnserve command with identical parameters (except as daemon): works fine
- Rebooting the machine (hey, it's a windows box): no change
- Reinstalling the service (with various permutations on the parameters): no change
- Removing subversion 1.3 and svnservice.exe, and replacing it with subversion 1.5, installing svnserve as a service: no change
Right now we're sort of up a creek. As a temporary workaround I'm running svnserve from the command-line so the developers can keep working, but this isn't a great solution for the long term.
Anyone have any ideas on what might be wrong or how to troubleshoot this?
